I am pleased to report that the RAF has been allocated a little extra funding to provide for more modern aircraft, though the highly sophisticated technology is proving a challenge to the personnel.
Royal Aircraft Factory SE5a ca 1917.

I have tried to pop the colour on this one and have removed some odd distractions ( as advised on a previous submission).

Not sure what you mean by pop the colour. I like this, a good amusing well senn candid. One of the great fighters of WW1. Just a touch bright above the top wing.

Nice.

interesting shot with a strange crop. the bald sky above the top wing isnt helping and im sure it would be better cropped off however the rest i like and is pretty well controlled.

i dont get the popping either as this usually refers to a monochrome conversion with a selective area left in colour.

It looks better with a little more contrast as in Mod1, and Ive also reduced the amount of empty sky.


Mod2 explains colour popping.

There isn't any colour popping present in this picture, but I like the quality nevertheless. There was probably a nice picture to be had from the front as well so that you could see the faces of the people involved. The sky is the major distraction so an otherwise good upload.

Normally you would need a smaller aperture than f4, but it just goes to show the DoF available with compacts.

I don't think that Geoff's referring to colour popping in the sense that we normally expect and to which you're all referring.
Looking at the shot and reading the description I think that he's saying that he's increased the vibrance or 'pushed' the colours a little.

Yes, I did mean I had "pushed" the colours a little! Willie's mod showing genuine colour popping is good, but also gave me the idea that a black/white or sepia conversion of the whole image could look more "in period". I couldn't get a front view as we had to stay behind the barriers, but I agree the sky doesn't help
Thanks for your interest and advice,

Geoff
